Done (git master).
I added this text to the docstring of -goto- and -view-:

The buffer will get visible if BACKGROUND is nil or there is no other
emacs-w3m buffer regardless of BACKGROUND, otherwise (BACKGROUND is
non-nil) the buffer will be created but not appear to be visible.
BACKGROUND defaults to the value of `w3m-new-session-in-background',
but it will be inverted if called interactively with the prefix arg.
